Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme: I won this through a giveaway from PaperDollRevenge some time ago. She told me it's great for dry skin people like myself. I tried using it in the beginning of this year, still winter weather, and it was too light for my skin. I restarted using it during spring and now summer, and I love it! It's so refreshing and moisturizing. It also smells great! It has a floral scent. I'm not great when it comes to floral scent but if I had to take a guess, I would say rose.
Reviva Labs Makeup Primer: The first product I ever tried from Reviva Labs was their serum. I had such a great experience I was kind of scared I might be expecting too much from this product. It did not fail! It's a silicon based primer, and it reminded me of certain primers. The only difference is that it actually covered my imperfection, my huge pores on my nose. If it covers up my imperfection and makes my foundation/BB creams look natural on my skin, I'm sold!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey: I reviewed this product on my blog so feel free to read it. :) I've been obsessed with this color and product after I purchased it. I have to say Honey is my favorite color so far. By the way, I bought two more colors which I'll talk about it in a future post. :X I love that it's kind of moisturizing, shiny, opaque, and the best part it's a stain. I do not have to reapply it that quickly.
Inglot Eyeshadow Palette: I've been meaning to review this palette for some time, but I want to take some eye pictures with the eyeshadows. Unfortunately, the pictures have not been coming out that great. Either my camera got worst or I need more natural light in the bathroom. :X I love their eyeshadows for many reasons from pigmentation, smooth consistency to hardly any fall outs.
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly: This is an oldie, but a goody. I'm almost done with this which in my opinion is amazing! I never thought I'll ever finish anything especially when it comes to makeup. :X I have to say this is probably the one I reach for when I do my eye makeup. I still use my UDPP, I need to if I don't want creasing, but I noticed it's hard to blend with the original UDPP. For that reason, I apply Painterly on top so I can easily blend the eyeshadows. I like this product because it makes the eyeshadows more opaque, as well as, it's true to my skin color. It doesn't feel like I'm applying anything outrageous on my skin.
May Finished Products
Olay Regenerist Cream: I finished my second bottle from the package I got from Costco. I also did a thorough review on this product. I only used this at nights, because the product was so thick it did not sink quickly into my skin. For that reason, I used it at nights. By the time I wake up in the morning, it worked it's magic. It was moisturizing, as well as, it made my skin look more lively.
Would repurchase: Yes.
Aveeno Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture: I did not use this for nights. I actually used it for mornings, and it was great! It was hydrating and great for my winter, dry skin. I did a review on this product so feel free to read it.
Would repurchase: Yes.
Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion: I bought this couple of years ago, and I used it for my face and all over the body. At the time, I knew I was allergic to certain chemical in sunblock. I wasn't too sure what it was except that my brother was fine with this product. Now that I know I'm either allergic to oxybenzone or avobenzone or both, I know what to look for in my sunblock. For that reason, I moved onto Asian sunblocks since I know they don't use those chemicals. I love my Asian sunblocks better, but I don't use it on my body since it can be costly. I still used this but I'm not a big fan. It's so thick and does not melt onto the skin. It leaves a white layer which I'm not a big fan of.
Would repurchase: Maybe for the body.
Would repurchase: No.
my thorough review on this mascara.
Would repurchase: Yes.
